    Fantastic, you gave us a picture and then sent us to the future. Love the imagery here.

    hi jack, thanks for your kind comments on all three of my poems, lizzie siddal was addicted to laudanum...re your tanka here, it's very atmospheric and vivid and captures beautifully the contrast between summer and winter, love those "bird-pecked tomatoes" and love the last line too :)

    I did enjoy your poems, and I appreciate your comments here. However, I really don't like the bird pecks. Jack

    It's discouraging, to say the least.
